Hi folks,
I have a server I'm building that is internet accessible and I'm
wondering if there's any advantages/disadvantages of using either SFTP
-vs- SCP?

My primary concern is overall security of the server (even if that
means inconveniencing the end users), and I'm wondering if one method
might be better than the other?


Thank you,
